Wilderness Issue

China heeds the call of the wild by pursuing outdoor sports and conservation through national parks. Corporate money and disillusioned fans threaten China’s “football dream.” Disappearing artist communes testify to 30 tumultuous years in contemporary art. A Muslim Chinese community thrives in Central Asia; and more.

Call of the Wild
Outdoor sports, seen as a cheap and flexible form of recreation, are rapidly gaining fans among China’s middle class. Deadly hiking and trail-running incidents, though, have pitted regulators and the public in a debate over the limits of outdoor fun. Meanwhile, China’s fledgling national park system struggles to balance ecological aims with the livelihoods of locals in protected areas, and villagers are getting fed up with mountains of trash from urban outdoor-lovers.
Feature Stories 主题故事
Foul Play
With billion-dollar TV streaming rights and packed stadiums at matches, China’s love of football is at fever pitch. But with corporate funding and foreign players pouring into clubs, and the lower leagues struggling with financial strain, athletes and fans ask—who is the sport really for?
Battle for Bohemia
Chinese contemporary art was born in the experimental spirit of the 1980s and 90s, but its space is quickly shrinking—physically, in the eviction and gentrification of suburban “artist communes,” as well as politically and socially. Artists and gallerists weigh in on these changes.
Wedded to Tradition
With a population of 120,000, the Dungan of Central Asia are descendants of Hui Muslims who fled China in the 1800s. Following Islam, cooking Chinese recipes, and speaking a Mandarin dialect written in Cyrillic, they have held on to their unique heritage despite the forces of modernization.
Kaleidoscope 镜像中国
Live and Let Dye
Plant-based textile dyeing has a 5,000-year history in China, but the skill has all but disappeared in today’s industrialized society. Standing against this trend is the Rustic Indigo Dyehouse, a workshop in the bamboo forests of Sichuan that continues to painstakingly hand-print cloths with colors and patterns from nature—while promoting an idyllic, slow rural lifestyle to a growing body of fans.
Dragon’s Digest 三味书屋
Revenge Rocks
Written in 1997 after the launch of NASA’s Mars probe, this short story by well-known sci-fi writer Yang Ping gains new relevance in light of China’s recent missions to the Red Planet. Set in a future human colony on Mars, it explores a darker side of humanity’s space ambitions.
Gallery 水墨丹青
Savage Country
Welcome to a sinister and confusing China presented by multimedia artist Wang Tuo, who uses the philosophy of “pan-shamanism” to engage in a dialogue with history. Video, architecture, and home furnishings together form a labyrinth of riddles for the audience to unravel.
Chi Le Ma吃了吗
Keeping Cool
Coconut milk, ice, and everything nice: Qing bu liang, a customizable dessert from the tropical Hainan province, lives up to its name—“refreshing, nourishing, cool.” Throw in fruits, cereals, and any other delicacy in the kitchen to make a summer treat that will suit anyone’s taste.
On The Road 在路上
Drawing out the Song
Sandwiched between the ancient capitals of Luoyang and Kaifeng, Gongyi in central Henan is decidedly off the beaten path. Hidden in its wheat fields are ruined imperial tombs of the Northern Song dynasty, which offer a window into a lost empire—and the pitfalls of reconstructing history.

Burst Your Bubble
Recently translated into English, The Membranes by Chi Ta-Wei, Taiwan’s premier queer sci-fi author, is an imaginative look at identity and memory in a glitzy future. The 1995 novella’s fluid definition of queerness makes for an important read in today’s political clime.
Zoetrope 视听空间
Singing the Changes
After 1,400 years with hundreds of operas, plays, movies, TV dramas, novels, and comic book adaptations, the legend of White Snake returns to the screen (again) with a film version based on Cantonese opera, banking on sumptuous visual effects and a dynamic cast to draw in younger fans.
